Moonee Valley Q2 Race 7: Dilmah Exceptional The Vase 2040m

23/10/2015: Due to most of the runners not having distance experience makes this a bit of a guess race but I feel our guesses won't be too far off the mark. Tarzino was considered the run of the race from a VRC Derby point of view post race and there's no doubt he was going to finish at least second in the Caulfield Guineas but was badly chopped out of contention. His get back style is an issue at the tighter Moonee Valley track but he has to go on top all things said. Sovereign Nation ran on strongly in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas to finish just over two lengths from Press Statement and that should be good enough for the Stutt's Stakes winner, at this track, to notch up a win. Jameka's run in the Thousand Guineas was huge as she jumped awkwardly, over raced and ended up seven wide on the home turn. It's worth noting D Oliver has stuck with her so let's give her a chance in this race. Being by an Irish sire has me believing the longer distance will be suitable. I have just about had enough of Pasadena Girl this time in but all told she deserves one more chance, depending on price as far as I am concerned. The unknown quantity is Tally who slaughtered a weak maiden field last start and being sired by Irish sire Street Cry has me including him as a chance.

PACE COMMENTS In a race like this where the runners have little, if any experience, at the distance it is difficult to assess the actual pace with any authority. For that reason I am going to suggest we just assume the race will be more about who actually runs the distance than pace.
